Tobin International Geological Library Fund
Established in 1980 by Tobin Research of San Antonio, this fund provides all materials funds for the Geology Library map collection. All other materials are received through depository or exchange programs. The Tobin Fund has permitted the Geology Library to acquire some outstanding map materials and atlases that would have been impossible to acquire otherwise. Investment proceeds from the endowment also support staff assistance five hours per week. This assistance has enabled the Library to catalog a major portion of the collection. Investment proceeds from the endowment have also been used to support the purchase of equipment, furniture, and supplies for the Map Room.
